Happy Birthday Socks

Today my oldest friend turned another year older, and while he is more than happy to claim that he only turned 36, you and I both know that he’s actually only a month younger than I am. Which is to say, not only is he my oldest friend, he’s literally my oldest friend. He’ll likely […]

A Vexing Pattern

Pretty cool, right? I’m going to be honest with you, though, I have absolutely zero idea how to describe them. Is that some kind of funky puzzle piece in a pattern? Or, uh, misshapen birds, maybe? I got no idea. Knowing me, though, this is probably some well-known pattern with a weird name like “cougartooth” […]

The News and A Noose

Had a chance to sit down and watch The Post tonight. I have to admit I’m a sucker for newspaper dramas; always have been. And I have to say, a movie pitting the government against the press was timely, to say the least. The media might have changed, but the conflict continues still. Not that […]

Sunlight and Superstition

I happened upon a stripe of late evening sunbeam to include with today’s socks, and the weather around here has been so neurotic lately, I wasn’t about to let it get away. As for the socks, these would actually make a great pair to wear on a fall Sunday afternoon when the Bengals are playing, […]

Monday Is Exhausting For Everyone

I was planning to write a post today about how these socks made me contemplate a world where The Joker picked up a former geometry teacher sidekick, and how appropriate that whole concept was for a Monday. But then Smoky tried to bring me a toy to play with and was too tired to even […]

Missed Opportunities

I wore these today because I had another hockey game and figured they were a good match for my jersey (not that I’d actually wear both at the same time, but that’s neither here nor there). As too often happens, though, life got in the way and I didn’t get to play tonight. But that’s […]

I’m Not A Monster

I can always count on Smoky to make a day’s sock post kinda not really about the socks. But how could anyone look in those big puppy eyes and complain?

Well, Hello Spring

Smoky and I got to sit on the patio this evening for the first time in 2018. I’m crossing my toes that today represents just the beginning of many sock installments from the backyard. That is; no matter what Mother Nature brings this weekend or over the weeks to come, let’s hope these splat socks […]

Pink Camouflage Inception

Hockey started back up tonight. One more season until the rink closes down for the summer and I try to recuperate from all the various nagging Old Guy injuries I’ve accumulated since last fall. I’ve been holding on to these sweet pink camo socks for just the right occasion, and I’d be hard pressed to […]

Sometimes Ya Need A Little Hump Day Weekend Vibe

Who doesn’t love orange socks with multi-colored dots? I mean, maybe these are a touch more Saturday than Wednesday, but this morning I decided to say screw it. Everybody can use a good dose of Saturday in the middle of the week, hump day or not. At no point did I regret that decision.
